star this property answer text <p>The department does not collect information on the subjects offered by individual institutions. However, the number of students entering each subject can be provided as a proxy, and this data is available at institutional level from 2011/12. Between 2011/12 and 2016/17, there have been 99 sixth form colleges that were open for at least one year. The attached table gives the number of pupils entering each subject at each institution for each year.</p><p>Some sixth form colleges were not always open, have since closed, or have converted to academies (these are denoted as ‘-’ in the figures). Having zero entries into a subject does not necessarily mean that the subject was not offered by the sixth form in that year - it could be the case that no students chose to enter it or if they did, they sat no exams in that particular year. Some sixth forms also have small cohorts of students and therefore the numbers entering different subjects is naturally low and prone to fluctuation; this could lead some sixth forms to have no entries in particular years.</p>
